Dominique

Maciej Kuźmiński Company

The word feminism should be enriched in such way, to include also men.

Dominique is a coherent and well thought through show, which consequently – often with a good dose of humour – analyses notions of man and womanhood – Mirosław Baran

Dominique is a powerful socio-political statement, coherent on every level, […] delivered in a layered way, which allows it to be accessible to more than just dance audience. – Hanna Raszewska

Dominique, started as a collaboration between Maciej Kuźmiński and Dominik Więcek, brought the artists 13 awards and distinctions at multiple international choreographic contests, and with them invitations and commissions.

      • Dominique is an example of a excellently constructed critical choreography, which strength lies not in the poetics of shock or excess, but in a smart wit brilliantly performed by Dominik Więcek.

     

      • One of the few solos, that touched on a serious subject – the fragility of identity, and played it with humour
